About the Event

Two wonderful soloists will sing Italian love duets at the beautiful St. Mark’s English Church in Florence!
Saint Mark's Anglican Church was established in 1881, constructed within a Neo‐Renaissance Medici Palace once owned by Machiavelli. Rather austere in its exterior appearance, the church delights the eye with its rich interior. Ornate Venetian lamps and brass decorations hang from the archway before the grand white marble altar.
Today, the church is an indispensable part of Florence’s cultural life, and a fitting tribute to Italy's national appreciation of arts and culture. It houses an opera company that regularly stages highly popular performances within the church. To see opera and listen to classical music in this church is a unique experience, as its stucture allows the viewers to sit close to the artists, and enjoy the magical atmosphere almost as if they were part of the show.
The program includes duets from Italian operas including La Traviata, La Boheme, and Madame Butterfly, as well as Neapolitan love songs.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the performance. St. Mark’s church was quaint was charming and the opera singers were amazing. I enjoyed the narration of the story behind each aria by Franz Rossi the pianist and organizer of the event. I was also was also touched that the proceeds of concert supports AMALA a charity project for children in South India.

    As a San Francisco‐based tour operator, I regularly bring our groups to St.Mark’s for the “Love Duets” program! Very popular! The performers are outstanding; Franz is brilliant at the piano, and we so appreciate the fees support such a worthy cause. We will be back! Highly recommend!
